Looking for more of that brighter, feminine imagery that serves as the opposite counterpart to the darker, "gothic" look found in bands like Nightwish and Cradle of Filth. Can be any metal style/genre (symphonic/power metal preferred), and it doesn't have to be Japanese, but female-fronted preferred. Mother Earth era Within Temptation is probably a close example I can think of right now.

Female fronted J-Metal you'll find in Tears of Tragedy.

And the same, but all-female in Cyntia.

Truth be told, the request was a bit vague, so I cast a pretty wide net here. Hopefully it caught something you like!
I've written a fantasy novel. It's 145,000 157,586 words long!
It's also going to be the first part of a trilogy!
Currently seeking the means to monetize these things...
